I saw them at Bonnaroo a few years back. Dropped acid before the Allman's set, so when WSP hit the stage I was in a good place....and found myself completely bored by the music. Jams seemed to go nowhere.

Now, years later, I saw them again sans LSD but with the addition of Jimmy Herring. Much more enjoyable, but still doesn't grab me the way the Dead, Allmans or, yes, Phish do.

Took me a while to get into Phish, and even now some songs are just an atonal mess, but they do some wicked funky stuff and can rip out some truly inspired rocking tunes.
